Two Year High for “General Hospital” on ABC

September 12, 2013 by Marc Berman in Highlights with 7 Comments

Based on the live plus same day data from Nielsen for the week of September 2, veteran ABC daytime drama “General Hospital” rose to two-year highs in key women 18-49 (734,000) and women 25-54 (967,000), with a 10-month high in women 18-34 (274,000) and a five-month high in total viewers (2.75 million). Thursday’s telecast, featuring the birth of Britt’s (Kelly Thiebaud) baby, rose to the drama’s most-watched telecast in almost two years in women 18-49 (845,000) and women 25-54 (1.06 million).

Heading into the tail-end of this current 50th season, “General Hospital” is heading for its strongest season in five years in total viewers (2.97 million), with the largest year-to-year increases of any broadcast daytime drama (+14 percent) and gains of as much as 36 percent among women 18-34 (253,000). Needless to say, “General Hospital” lives on!

  • Just enjoyed the season-finale of The Crazy Ones. If CBS passes on season 2, another net (TBS perhaps) should pick it up.
